About Treksta

Since 1988, Treksta has been developing the newest solution to make the human life more comfortable. To change conventional heavy and stiff hiking boots, Treksta was the first in the world to develop the ‘Light trekking boots’. For more than 25 years, Treksta has remained itself as the world leader of light trekking shoes.

Treksta’s history of innovation does not stop there. Treksta is constantly moving forward and taking on new challenges. Since Treksta launched its clothing lines in 2004, Treksta has been able to establish itself as a complete outdoor sports wear brand.

About Treksta

The invention of NestFit Technology has also added much more sensation to the world. This patented technology allowed us to realize that our conventional style of shoe shapes are wrong. This exclusive NestFIT™ technology, found only in TrekSta shoes, provides a natural habitat for toes, heels and arches. TrekSta shoes look different. And when you put them on, they feel different too. Different and better.

The name Treksta was originated from the company founder D.C. D.C had a strong will to build a company that will become a star of trekking. For D.C, it was very important to make shoes which could light people’s paths just like a star at night. As a result of innovative efforts, in 2009, Treksta was ranked 16th in the world among the leading outdoor sportswear brands, and Treksta keeps moving forward to become the first ranking in the world by the year 2016.
